About this title
Using bold, full-color graphic illustrations, Graphic Histories portrays critical chapters in American history in a way that reluctant readers will find immediately accessible. Simple, exciting text and vivid drawings work together to explain critical events- from battles to boycotts to triumphs of human courage and technology- that shaped the course of American history.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6 The first book is neither interesting nor informative. The text plods along, and the drawings are mostly dark and drab. Various aspects of the history of moon exploration are touched on, but there is no substantive discussion. Also, the illustrations and text boxes don't always mesh. Bus Boycott wanders aimlessly. It, too, is quite wordy, but simplistic in its language and ideas. Very few facts are included. For example, a lawyer is mentioned, but who was he? Bombs exploded in black churches does not give the true nature of the tragedy. The illustrations are static, and the images of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks bear little resemblance to the real people. There is not enough information here for reports, and the unattractive art is unlikely to draw graphic-novel fans. Ronnie Gordon, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
